PXG 0211 DC Irons Vs Taylormade Sim Max Comparison And Review
The SIM Max irons have been cemented in recent years as outstanding game-improvement irons. After all, Taylormade is a household name but that doesn’t always mean their clubs give the best performance.
Case in point: the PXG 0211 DC irons. These irons combine premium materials with an elegant design that makes them a must-play for beginners and mid handicappers. But are the PXG 0211 DC irons really better than the Taylormade SIM Max’s? Read on to find out.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
The PXG 0211 DC irons feature an altered muscle back design so right off the bat, they don’t look like your typical game-improvement irons.
PXG is known for making expensive, premium-grade clubs. The PXG 0211 DC irons are their foray into mid-price, game-improvement irons but they still retain some of the features that make their other clubs so desirable.
Namely, we are referring to the miraging steel face. The miraging steel face of the PXG 0211 DC irons is less than a tenth of an inch thick! However, miraging steel is still incredibly resilient which gives these irons incredible ball speed and feel.
These irons also feature progressive offset which will be a welcome site for any player struggling with accuracy and squaring up at impact. Overall these irons are a great combination of forgiveness and distance.
Taylormade SIM Max Irons Overview
Taylormade also claims that the SIM Max’s have an extremely thin face that will help high to mid handicappers improve their distance.
And in fact, Taylormade lives up to that claim – at least in comparison to the PXG 0211 DC’s. The SIM Max’s have a 1.5mm face thickness which is just about equal to that of the PXG 0211 DC irons. Like the PXG 0211 DC’s the SIM Max irons also have a face undercut to help the face flex even more.
However, the SIM Max iron faces aren’t made of miraging steel so the thin face would work against these irons if it weren’t for the Speed Bridge. The Speed Bridge increases stability for the ultra-thin face by bracing the crown and sole in the rear.
The SIM Max’s and PXG 0211 DC’s performed similarly in terms of accuracy, distance and forgiveness. However, the deal-breaker for us was the superior feel of the miraging steel and soft polymer core that came with the PXG 0211 DC irons.
